of florida and also into sections of louisiana. we received too much rain already for the summer months at least to what is average. we are talking more heavy rain expected across many of the areas. a lot of it is associated with tropical moisture. we are watching the area of low pressure and it could phoningsly become a tropical storm or depression as we head to the next couple days as we move into the gulf of mexico. regardless of developments this is what is going to be happening over the next several days across parts of georgia, florida panhandle 5-8 inches of rain are possible out here locally even higher amounts of flooding is going to be a huge concern as we head into the end of the workweek and also into the weekend coming up. you can see we have a line of showers and storms set up along sections of the carolinas also to georgia. we have the threat of severe weather across parts of the plains starparts of setexas int central north dakota. another cool start to the day in the great lakes and northeast. well below average. current temperatures only 40 in international falls. only

criminals. louisiana is the latest fed target. consider rick perry, now defending the state's voter i.d. law after texas was sued. or jan brewer fighting the feds after her crackdown on illegals. tim, in each and every case and in other cases just like them, states defy, and then the government pounces. >> so, president obama does not seem to like federalism very much. federalism is the idea that many issues are best handled by states and the federal government should not tell states how to run their business, and you see very good reason in last the voucher program is mostly used by poor black children in failing schools. it helps them get out of the schools and into better schools, and yet the doj comes in and decides, well, this is somehow resegregating the schools because some people are moving out of some school districts into others. they don't have the firsthand knowledge, the knowledge on the ground and it's absurd to say a program helping poor black kid get into better schools in new orleans is discriminatory, but from washington, lawyers, it looks that way. >> neil: the same for ar

louisiana. i had a great trip there. there is such potential to open up and create jobs here. host: what is it? guest: it is taking those amazing resources of natural gas and oil and also the renewables there and putting americans to work and creating revenue that we need for better roads and better schools. i think in washington we too often polarize things. either you are for the environment or for jobs or something like this. i do not see it that way. we can do what has and done in louisiana and other areas. diversify the economy. they have great paying jobs. i want the same thing here. host: what specifically? guest: i ran on the opening of coastal virginia so that we can get to the natural resources that are there in an environmentally safe way. the governor ran on it. the general assembly want it. the only thing holding us back is the administration. that is not a partisan comments. there is essentially it. they are not moving forward. we are working hard bipartisan. we want to move that forward and get virginians working again. it got to diversify our economy. this is a great way
. beginning with video that is awesome in the sense that it is just absolutely crazy. bayou corn, louisiana, is the site of what "mother jones" calls the biggest ongoing industrial disasters in the united states you haven't heard of. state is suing a mining company called texas brine for allegedly causing a massive underground sinkhole surely, slowly swallowing the town. it is growing. the entire town of 340 people have been forced to evacuate. unfortunately, the trees surrounding the sinkhole don't have that option. check that out. the assumption parish emergency response team released this video wednesday. an entire grove of trees getting sucked down, 750 feet deep. notice they don't fall over. they get sucked down into the massive hole below. amazing and terrifying. the second awesomest thing on the internet today, speaking of underground calf vernes, i add happen opportunity last week to take a field trip 180 feet below the streets of new york city to tour the construction project to build a new subway line up 2nd avenue in manhattan. this is what it looked like down there. incredible f
as enforced in some states, not those that had a mandatory death penalty, like louisiana and i think north carolina, was constitutionaling if it was narrowly confined to avoid the risk of being as random as being struck by lightning, the quote from what father had written in an earlier case, and wha what happened ovee years as personnel on the court changed, particularly a change after both of them resigned, after they had retired, the court expanded the category of cases in which the death penalty was permissible, and it also expanded the procedures -- one example is the victim impact evidence, which would presumably might be admissible in noncapital cases, but evidence that has nothing to do with the blameworthiness or the actual guilt of the defendant became permissible on the theory well it is okay in other cases. i thought, and justice powell thought the original opinion it was totally improper in a capital case to allow a category of evidence in that has just an emotional appeal, and is entirely on the side of increasing the likelihood that the jury would return capital -- return a d

this and they look over the crowd, everybody here has today affected by the transportation system. in louisiana talking to a manufacturer of our masuda goals, he told me were the most important things was getting those things from the market. he stopped. i can pull this out. i said i'm in the transportation business. we are all in a transportation business. we have to get the serial in the milk out in the morning. she was touched by the system. it will cost more for the milk. .t impacts us all good progress. i think there are some very good reforms. we are still slowly getting the information. secretary fox will be here later today. i am encouraged. we had dinner the other night. i didn't know was several republicans. we had a great conversation. i look forward to it i did. it is always a positive thing. sometimes you have to leave politics at the door and get things done. i'm sure you will appreciate with the signature has to say. they gave us a poor grade. we are at a point where we have got to figure out how to do this anyway that keeps us competitive in the world. there is a federal role. w
bill came up, we worked with our allies, mary landrieu of louisiana and lindsey graham of south carolina and the house side, jim moran of virginia and bill young of florida to have language to stipulate that usda could not spend any of its dollars setting up an inspections program for horse slaughter for human consumption. we won the amendments but the spending bill is not passed because congress is not doing its job on a reliable basis. we don't know when that was going to pass but usda surprisingly -- with that looming, with that spending ban looming and the prospect of the plants operating for two months, three months at the longest, basically said okay, we're going to grant you inspection permits. bill, this is even more strange because the administration in its 2014 budget request on agricultural spending urged a defund of the horse slaughter plant. so i think the lawyers got ahold of this and they took this highly legalistic view that well, we don't support horse slaughter but the current law says it is okay. so we're just going to allow this. >> bill: when i read that, i
. >> clear just to get his reaction on it. one republican member of the senate, david vitter, from louisiana, coming out on the record saying congress should not being exempt. at least one is fighting for this. rest of the republicans i know they're in recess, where are they on this issue? points to a bigger problem, bill and doug. doug may agree of me on this. the most destructive division in the united states is not between republicans and democrats or conservative and liberals. it is between the ruling elites and the rest of us. between the ruling elite and regular folks. because the rest of us are getting screwed every day. exactly. bill: people are losing faith in the institution of government and this is a case in point. if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance, unless you're a member about congress and you can do whatever you want, doug. >> that is absolutely the case and monica couldn't be more correct. bottom line, the average working american is struggling. he or she doesn't have a chance to opt out of laws to get special exemptions. and that's why resentment against
